Has anyone ever been to a Lowell Spinners game? I hear such great things about how family oriented it is and how reasonably priced it is and how entertaining it is ever for little kids with short attention spans. I wonder if there is an emphasis on peanuts there the way there is in other parks.

I sent them an e-mail and here is their response:
Heather,
Sorry, but I don't think we will be of any assistance in your search for a
safe peanut free environment. We do not have a peanut free section and we
do not have a peanut free game.

So much for catering to families and being family oriented!! At least they were honest about it!

Wow, that is a curt reply. No interest it seems. Hmmm. My dh has attended. I just asked him what it was like with regards to peanuts.
He said he does not recall there really being alot of peanuts, but he does not have the radar for it I would. Also commented that seats are sold out and it is likely to be next to people and unable to move. So few options if it were bad. becca

That's disappointing. I'd heard great things about this team too and had hoped to attend next year.
Has anyone contacted the Pawtucket (RI) team?

Are you talking about the PawSox baseball team? If so, I've been there with my family. It was a few years ago and I don't remember seeing any peanuts around. I would double check as their concession menu may have changed.

Well, it seems we were a little too quick to judge the Lowell Spinners. I just got this e-mail with fantastic news [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] :
Making a no peanut section is not an option as the stadium is not large
enough or divided up enough to meet that goal. However, After responding
to your first email we discussed the opportunity in the office of having a
peanut free night and are leaning towards scheduling one.
Keep your eye on the website for information.
Thanks for your inquiry.

Heather,
That's wonderful! If they follow through, our family will definitely try to make that game!

They (we!) might be able to take advantage of a greater media opportunity if they can schedule it during Food Allergy Awareness Week in May. Here's a link to another Ballpark that did this:

Here the press release from FAAN regarding FAAW 2004 [url="http://www.foodallergy.org/press_releases/faaw.html"]http://www.foodallergy.org/press_releases/faaw.html[/url]
Edited to add - Oops, I just checked their website and I see they don't play in May - disregard!

Great news! I would love a heads up if I miss it too, Heather! They sell out quickly according to dh. I will put him on it as well. He likes to take in a game there. becca

Can someone else send an e-mail and inquire? I'm getting impatient because their schedule is filling up fast and I don't see "peanut free game" listed yet. I hope they don't change their minds.

I was thinking now is the time to start asking them if they'll host a peanut free gave this coming season. If we show a lot of interest by contacting them, maybe they'll do it this year.
